This week…….

May 18th, 2012 · 2 Comments

……… I’ve been mostly……….
Getting to grip with the new camera.
The Castwatch subs have been blown on a ‘Micro Four Thirds’ setup.
Luckily for me, there’s a blue button on the top that sets it into ‘auto mode’, so it’s like the good old point and click, just a bit bigger.
Out of the 500 or so image’s I’ve captured, there were at least 20 in focus!
Life is a learning curve :)


Skate On, Dude!


The Maestro!

Currently, time doesn’t always allow me the luxury of blogging.
It’s feels like ages since I’ve indulged myself, so as I have a spare moment, here’s a little snippet of what’s been floating my boat in recent times here at Sunny Rhyl HQ.

Hail! Geezer!!!

April 24th, 2012 · No Comments

Venue - Rhyl, Splash Point
Tide - Low
Time - Day
Bait - Fresh Lug, Frozen Razor

My first outing for a while.
Notbad had a stunning fish within casting distance of tonights mark just a few days before and I had the time and felt inspired.

The Maestro was absent, but did kindly supply the bait.
Notbad and Al had put in a few casts for no reward before I arrived.

On the ground, the wind seemed North Westerly, but the ominous black cloud was heading towards us on a NE tack.

The sunset made up for the lack of fish!

Meanwhile, as the sun descended in the West, the black cloud from the East finally arrived.
Rain, followed by hail, followed by torrential rain!

No fish but Totally Invigorating :)

Dreams Never End!

April 3rd, 2012 · 8 Comments

Well, times change and she had to go!
‘Jabula’ had been for sale for the last 8 months and after several false dawns, she finally sold a few weeks ago.

‘Jim Ricketts Hiab’ was the chosen means of transportation.
A great service and highly recommended!

Having lifted many a boat over the years, Tony’s got an eye for this!

Her new home was the beautiful village of Craster. Just a few miles east of Alnwick on the Northumbrian coast.

With all the paperwork in order, time to hand her over!

There was a great turnout at the harbour.
The hospitality the night before was fantastic and the following morning the party atmosphere continued.
It is custom to celebrate the arrival of a new boat in Craster. The last significant vessel to arrive here, 16 years ago, resulted in a party lasting 3 days. It is still talked about locally :)
This party was going to run and run, with the Rum, Whisky and Lager flowing by 9am and the local pub booked for the evening.

Douglas. the new owner, is a true gentleman and I wish him all the luck in the world.

I’d like to thank all the people that have assisted me over the last few years. There are many of you and I am eternally grateful to each and everyone of you.

And finally, to quote Ice T from Breakdance, The Movie………
“This story’s through but wait for part 2!”

‘Dreams Never End!!!!’

Bore Da!

March 12th, 2012 · 1 Comment

March 10th saw the the largest predicted tide of 2012.

These ‘big springs’ bring exciting times all around the waters edge.
I completed New Years Resolution No.1 - To view the Dee Bore.

There were many other options to consider though.
A lunchtime walk along The Cob would have been spectacular too. No Bore, but with such a high tide it would have produced a massive body of water rising right up the dyke.

All the Twitchers headed to Parkgate to witness the saltmarsh being coverd completely, with a wealth of wildlife on show.

Local shore fishermen took the opportunity to fish beyond The Perch and had a rare chance of hitting the drop off, where the fishing can be interesting!
A good chance or a Ray, maybe?

Bait diggers reached banks that are only accessible a few times a year.

Foragers dined in style, with the Razor Clam beds being exposed.

Whatever your bag, I hope you enjoyed the wonders of the natural world.

This was my footage of the tidal rush up the River Dee. Filmed between the Blue Bridge and Summers HQ.

It was a spectacle, one I’m glad to have seen again.
It doesn’t have the same amplitude as the Severn Bore and I certainly haven’t done it justice with my filming. You had to be there I guess :)

If you want to get truly inspired, may I suggest you spend the next 234 minutes of your life marvelling at this Paramotor filmed footage of the Severn Bore from 2010. (2:14 is truly stunning!!!!)
Twiddle with the youtube settings to get it full screen, full volume and 720P for maximum effect!

Hope you had fun, enjoyed the phenonemon and stayed safe.
If you missed it, there’s always next year!

Happy Days!!!

Pont Sir Y Fflint

March 1st, 2012 · No Comments

A bit of Welsh for St David’s Day seems appropriate.

This one is for all you horse lovers out there!
Well, it looks equine to me, in an abstract sort of way :)

It’s the largest asymmetric cable stayed bridge in Britain. Carrying the A548 across the River Dee, it is underused and stunning to boot!
So quiet, that at lunchtime today, I chanced my arm and anchored on underneath it and took this image.
I did have my hazards on and kept an eye on the rear view mirror, but a risky maneuver nonetheless.
Sadly not in ‘The Rocco’, but more of that another time.

Hapus Dydd Gŵyl Dewi!!!
